Your colocation questions answered in short!
For Housing i.e. Colocation, all IT spaces (e.g. height units or server racks) are made available to house and operate systems, network components or other rack hardware. The IT infrastructure comes with high security standards, climate control and multiple redundant Internet connection and can be used for a monthly fee. This means that there are no high investment costs for server operations conforming to data protection law.
Colocation is the solution for you if ...
- you already own systems and the infrastructure has to fulfill the high security standards for conformity to the European data protection laws (GDPR)
- you need a highly-available network infrastructure, energy supply and carrier connection
- have to verify the use of an ISO-certified environment
- you want to rely on 24/7 on-site support without organizing it yourself
With Colocation, the hardware belongs to the customer, who is responsible for the purchase, installation and replacement of components. The customer only pays for the ongoing costs of operating the system (electricity, traffic etc.) and for remote hands services (if ordered).
With Hosting, the hardware belongs to the provider, who makes use thereof available for a monthly fee. The maintenance costs are already included in this fee. Due to the familiar components, the support team can take action quickly if necessary. The monthly costs are constant and planable over the long term.
Many hosting providers use colocation in order to save on costs for operating in conformity with standards. InterNetX combines both: We offer B2B customers hosting and colocation solutions.
Operating servers in conformity with standards is cost and resource intensive, as the European laws on data protection (GDPR) present a difficult hurdle. This includes requirements such as:
- Entry and access control with sufficient documentation that fulfills the standard for confidentiality - GDPR Article 32(1)(b)
- High quality of the infrastructure, e.g. an uninterruptible power supply (UPS), must meet the requirements for availability and load capacity/resilience - GDPR Article 32(1)(b)
In order to meet the availability requirements according to the Tier 3 standard, a redundant and high-quality infrastructure must be set up. For self-run data centers, this is usually an uneconomical investment. High bandwidths and connections to several carriers, as well as energy-efficient environments, are only in place at a few locations.
- DE-CIX enabled site: extremely short latencies to the DE-CIX peering POPs
- Cold aisle containment: energy-saving, constant cooling performance
- Double floors: less cooling required and lower energy consumption
- High racks: 47 U instead of 42 U
- Lockable racks: more security on site
- 24/7-access: possible without notice or supervision
- 24/7 on-site support: expert assistance around the clock
- 100 % green energy
The data center is conveniently located and easy to reach via transport connections near Munich. There is plenty of free parking directly in front of the building.
If your biometric data has not been recorded, you will met at entry and accompanied by a member of staff. Access appointments should, if possible, be made 24 hours in advance. An identity document (personal ID card or passport) muss must be carried (not required for 24/7 registrations)
The data center itself is only accessible via an elevator. To use the elevator, please report to our staff members.
Rack space will be made available within a few work days. Optional services, like dedicated carrier connections are available after consultation.
The trained InterNetX Data Center Team will give you an introduction at the beginning. Please contact us 24 hours in advance to make appointments for access and to record the biometric data of the person authorized for access. Emergency access to the housing area is also possible at any time without an InterNetX member of staff, if a lockable rack has been been booked.
In order to implement the concept for climate control optimally, only 19" rack servers can be installed. Unused slots should be covered in order to avoid loss of cooling performance.
Please bring your own tools and rack rails, although these can be stored on site. A monitor cart and stepladder are available for general use. The "Unpack & Deploy" room, including wifi, can be used for free for preparatory work.
Additional items (tools, spare parts, foil etc.) may not be stored in the rack as these constitute a fire hazard. Please feel free to store these in the office.
The racks measure 60 x 120 cm. There is sufficient space for cables. The cable shafts are also separated for thirdracks.
With 47 U, the racks are comparatively high. A stepladder is available for your use.
For individual rack units, InterNetX provides a divided switch with 1 Gbit/s (copper). We recommend booking a redundant uplink.
For lockable racks, you can select the switch yourself. Please let us know in advance, whether you would prefer glass fibre single mode, multi mode (recommended) or copper. For a redundant uplink, the switches must be compatible with LACP. For a redundant uplink in connection with two switches, these must support stacking. If you would like to assign this work via InterNetX, please contact our sales at email@example.com.
If you want to move an already existing dedicated carrier connection or want to commission access to a hyperscaler (Cloud Connect), please contact our sales team.
Shared racks (single rack units) have a C14 power strip. If cables are connected appropriately, the A/B feed can be used (recommended).
Red CEE-16A three-phase plugs are preinstalled in the racks by default. Switched and metered PDUs (power distribution unit) can be booked optionally.
Own PDUs can be used after consultation. If no PDUs are used, C14 power strips are installed: six in a full rack, two in a thirdracks (one per phase).
As oposed to hosting, for which the calculation for invoicing is based on volume, for colocation the calculation is based on bandwidth.
In the "95/5 principle", measuring points are determined over the whole month, from which 5 % of the highest values are deducted before invoicing. This means that the short-lived peaks are taken out of the equation and the consumption curve is flattened to the advantage of the customer.
The booked uplink of e.g. 1 Gbit/s is available without restrictions.
You can view your current traffic statistics via ISAC at cloud.isac.de, the exact monthly invoicing is billed retrospectively.
